It reminded me how much we hold on to pieces of our past as we wait for our future ahead. If you yearn for this too then press play as you will leave this movie with a handful of tears, a pocketful of laughter and a wallet that was pleased to have loaned you the money. Great film to watch on those lazy Sunday afternoons...
